Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, has tested positive for coronavirus.
Mr Bolsonaro speaking in a TV interview said the fever he had been experiencing had gone down and that he felt “very well”.
‘I’m well, normal. I even want to take a walk around here, but I can’t due to medical recommendations,’ Bolsonaro told a group of journalists on Tuesday, July 7 – insisting he had only mild symptoms, not a cause for alarm.
‘I can’t get very close,’ he said in comments recorded by Foco do Brasil. ‘I came from the hospital. I underwent a lung scan. The lung’s clean.’
This this making it the fourth time the 65 year-old would test for the virus, and now positive having tested negative three times in March after meeting with US president Donald Trump in Florida.
